Purpose, Vision and Values

Engage. Excite. Empower.

Engaging, exciting and empowering lifelong learners through a creative, mastery-based curriculum

Our curriculum is centred around developing the whole child: from their head, to their heart, to their hand.

Our Purpose:

At East Farleigh, we believe that education provides a route to empowering children to have the resilience and moral character to overcome challenges and succeed. We aim to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment that exposes children to the best that has been thought and said, instilling in them a love of knowledge and culture to become the next generation of informed citizens and positive contributors to the society in which they live.

Our curriculum is centered around developing the whole child: from their head, to their heart, to their hand.

Our Vision:

  • Deliver a creative curriculum which instils the value of knowledge and skills, inspiring a love of learning.

  • Ensure leaders drive continuous improvement through effective decision-making based on current research and best practice.

  • Maximise opportunities to work with local, National and global partners to equip our children to be confident and courageous citizens

  • Provide a safe, inclusive environment that fosters openness and independence, celebrating diversity and promoting equality.

  • Optimise opportunities for all students to exceed expectations and reach their full potential, preparing them for their next stage of learning

  • Expect all members of our school community to respect each other and their environment, consistently upholding the highest standards of behaviour and self-discipline.


We value the partnership which exists between school, parents and community and the part it plays in realising this vision. We recognise that involving parents and carers in a child’s learning is one of the most significant contributors to raising attainment. We provide a safe, welcoming and compassionate environment where children, parents and staff are respected.

Our Values:

Personal excellence

Be the best we can be, learn from our mistakes and be proud of our achievements

Respect and friendship

Value the people around us and our environment, and show care, empathy and understanding

Inspiration

Make a positive difference to ourselves and those around us by the things that we say and do

Determination and courage

Be resilient, take risks and rise to the challenge

Equality

Be fair, be honest and don’t be afraid to be different

When children start East Farleigh they are allocated to one of our five in-school houses that have been named after famous castles in Kent (see below). As part of our commitment to our school values, children have the opportunity to earn themselves "House Points" (aka 'Dojos') by demonstrating one or more of our school values.
